Digital Media Rights, a privately-held digital media and advertising company, today announced they’ve closed a deal with DRG, a leading U.K-based content development and distribution company, for the acquisition of 38 television shows and movies. The programming, all of which will be making their North American digital premieres, will be available on Digital Media Rights’ OTT platforms as well as via Amazon. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“The pact with DRG marks one of our largest acquisition deals to date,” says Scott Kirkpatrick, DRG’s SVP for North and South America. “Across our own quickly-growing OTT channels, as well as on Amazon and other streaming platforms, I know our selective viewers will be thrilled with the wide range of quality British programming. There’s a host of content catering every interest, and we look forward to continuing a long and fruitful relationship with DRG.”
Among the popular British television series, movies, reality shows, and documentaries are “The Cult,” a thrilling high concept scripted series about a “life enhancement organization”; “Victoria’s Secrets,” an interview program featuring posh popster Victoria Beckham investigating the nature of celebrities; and “Bruce Lee: Tale of the Dragon,” the remarkable story of the legendary martial arts master.
Digital Media Rights’ OTT services include Yuyu, Midnight Pulp, and AsianCrush, which are available on the web, iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Chromecast, with premium subscription pricing starts at $4.99 a month, per channel.
